Awesome CSA in Chicago Area

edited December 2010 in Talk It Up

King’s Hill Farm delivers to several pick up areas in the city and burbs one day per week. The shares are weekly $33/bushel or $22/half bushel, with an option for “fruit surprise” at around $15/week (depending on what they can get). KHF is kind of a hybrid, since they do grow organi produce, but they supplement with stuff they get from an organic foods wholesaler, especially in off-season. You can also place special orders from a list they post weekly and skip weeks, if necessary. Membership is $60/year.

This week, my half share contained:

2 bananas

3 plums

2 bunches of broccoli

1 bunch of chard

1 bunch of some other kind of green

3 oranges

2 potatoes

2 small, white onions

3 tomatoes

1 carrot

1 zucchini

1 cucumber

1 green melon that I’m thinking is a watermelon

My fruit surprise:

5 peaches

1 pint blueberries

huge bag of red grapes—HUGE
